From Restorative Practice to Restorative Justice: Equity in School Discipline Reform

Restorative justice and restorative practices are two different ideas! Restorative justice is a philosophy present in various ways in a number of indigenous cultures worldwide. It is an alternative to conventional western criminal justice, where an individual who commits a crime is sentenced to a particular punishment. Restorative practices are school-based activities that bring the philosophy of restorative justice into the school or educational setting. Spend time with an expert in the field unpacking these ideas and getting some incredibly practical and immediate tools to put them into meaningful action in your school.
